LOL I wondered where the scriptures were. Don't promise I'll memorize them but I will do my best.

Sweetie, you are so right! David expressed it best when he said, "I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you." The only way we can know how God wants us to live and the choices we make that are pleasing to Him is if we are in His word daily. Memorizing is man's way of keeping God continuously in front of us. Have a blessed day, and keep smilin'! emoticon

Now I found it. I went back to the General Team Discussion Forum and found Memory Scripture.
I used to memorize real well but not as good now as I used to.

The Lord laid it on my heart to encourage persons to seek and develop a hunger for God's word and have that word stored in our hearts. I will be posting scriptures to memorize. It is my hope that we will begin this journey together and enjoy developing a love for the word of God.

There is a praise song: www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZXFi6lUUz5s "I am a friend of God." I realize that in order to be a friend of God, I have to know his word, love and obey God by reading His word and hiding that word in my heart. Yes, it does entail memorizing verses but also sections. I have a friend that is of the SDA faith tradition and they sing exclusively scripture songs. I come from the African American Tradition and our music is very much a part of the worship service, with hymnals, anthems, gospel songs, praise and worship. He explained that was fine, but what if we were a occupied nation and all Bibles were banned, how would we really know God's word? Many people would not have anything because the word has not been hidden. That is why they sing scriptures to always have a word.

Itís not difficult to memorize scripture. Just like anything else it takes work. How many of us could sing entire albums from our favorite bands, or how many of us guys could rattle off the statistics of our favorite football or baseball team, and yet how little of the Bible, Godís revelation, the sole source of eternal Life and Truth are we able to quote from the heart?

Depending on the interest, I will be posting scriptures weekly, (OT AND NT). I want to first see how this goes and as we grow, I will post passages. Please respond to this thread if you are interested.

I will be placing my scriptures on a spiral index card booklet, and keeping them with me. Please join in with us, and share your experiences with us to see what miracles and changes that God will do in our lives.
